Developed specially for small form factor PC systems, this model features a shorter PCB, measuring only 171mm long, and an efficient heat pipe cooler with a single fan. Sharing the same GCN core as the Dual-X models, the ITX Compact is no slouch with core clocks of 928MHz and memory clocks of 1375MHz (5.5GB/s effective).

I currently am running it a 1050Mhz core clock and 1500Mhz memory clock. This is over 100Mhz over stock OC. I know I can push it further and will update this review when I do. I have not done any meaningful benchmarking yet but have so far been able to play Witcher 2 at max detail at 1920x1200.
The fan in this card is not the quietest out there. When gaming it gets fairly loud, not annoyingly loud but it's noticeable.
I am running this in a UEFI Win 8.1 machine, Gigabyte GA-H97n-wifi mobo. If I disable CSM in the bios (which has to be done if you want secure boot enabled in Windows) I get a garbled Gigabyte splash screen for a couple seconds upon bootup, then the screen flickers and goes back to normal on the WIN 8.1 login screen. I think there may be some incompatibility between this card and the Gigabyte board I mention above. With that said, other than the garbled splash screen, everything works fine.
Overall this is a great GPU for the price. Its performance is mildly superior to a GTX760 / R9 280 (competes with a 280x / gtx770 in some scenarios) so if you are considering upgrading to this from one of those cards you will be mostly unimpressed. Last GPU I owned was a Nvidia 7700 GT and this was a major upgrade for me.
TLDR = great value for 1080p gaming at max settings.
EDIT 10/22/14 - So I've had over a month to play with this card and I'm still very pleased with this purchase. Card is now overclocked to 1075MHz core/1525MHz mem and is perfectly stable in all the standard benchmarks and games. I'm currently playing Borderlands the Pre Sequel at maxed out settings WITH Physx enabled (running on CPU) and getting over 60fps.
For those interested, my system is as follows:
Sapphire R9 285
4GB x 2 Kingston Hyper-X 1866MHz DDR3
EVGA 650G1 80+ Gold 650w PSU
2x Sandisk Extreme 2 240GB SSD
I still stand by my assertion that for 1080p gaming, the R9 285 is a STELLAR option.
Supports 2560x1080 21:9 monitors
Cons (Not really):
Uses a lot of power (need a 500 watt PSU), but pretty efficient for what your getting
I haven't really found a game I can play maxed out yet 1920x1080 but ive only played bioshock infinite and crysis 2 as my benchmarks.
The card has a quality cooler on it out of the box but depending on your operating conditions it may be sub-par. What's most impressive about this card's build is it's size. Sapphire took a full size GPU and chopped it into thirds.... I do not know how they managed that. My card is crammed into a CoolerMaster Elite 110 with so many other components that it is literally bent slightly in its PCI slot--it still functions flawlessly. Bearing that in mind I think it deserves a high score in this department....
AMD and Nvidia are locked in a hardware/software marketing war, and have been for some time. The short end of that stick is that some games are more Nvidia friendly and some games are more AMD friendly--it's a sad fact of gaming life. In Nvidia optimized games I notice rather frequent stutters or micro-stutters though the game will run otherwise perfectly at ~45 FPS on maximum or near maximum settings. Examples of this are Dying Light and Far Cry 4. As far as GPUs go, the R9 285 is rather rare and thus some games, if you are very unlucky, will not/do not support it. Alien Isolation, as I've read, does not like the R9 285 GPU--that game will crash after seconds. The Evil Within will not play with this card either. Both of those games ran flawlessly with my R9 290X powered PC. But anyway, the fact of the performance matter is that this is basically a Radeon 7970 (as used in PS4/XB1) with a little something extra at 2/3 of the size--for that reason it is great.
This card will function differently depending on your CPU. In my case: I went pro AMD and used an X4 860K with it. The most modern games will suffer noticeably with such a CPU/GPU combo. With a comparable CPU you can expect about 30 FPS constant in the most modern games at near maximum settings. In time, as software is updated, that will get better. Some games run better than others. I notice that Far Cry 4 just hates the GPU/CPU combo I use, but games like Wolfenstein: The New Order love it. If I were a bigger gamer I would nitpick performance more but the R9 285 gives me console power and a 'lil something extra--so I'm happy with it.
This is where the Sapphire Radeon R9 285 ITX really falls short--no pun intended. This card has an MSRP of $260. An Nvidia GTX 960 ITX has an MSRP of $200. What's more: the GTX 960 runs cooler, uses less power, and even performs better in some cases. Nvidia offers superior hardware--this is a fact. Even if this card is bought used for $200 an Nvidia GTX 960 is STILL a better value. That being said, it is not total highway robbery asking ~$200 for this card.
